Abstract

The aim of this study was to compare the effects of bilateral task training with unilateral task training on upper-limb outcomes in early post stroke rehabilitation. A single-blinded randomized controlled trial, with outcome assessments at baseline, post intervention (6wk), and follow-up (18wk) was conducted at inpatient acute and rehabilitation hospitals. Patients were randomized to receive bilateral training (n=56) or unilateral training (n=50) at 2 to 4 weeks post stroke onset.
